Mandatory Retirement and New Hobby
5 October 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After forty-seven years of work as general sales manager, Jonas (M. Emmet Walsh) is forced into a mandatory retirement. Along these years, his lonely wife Anita (Audra Lindley) has collected many pets and Jonas is unable to relax with the animals at home. When he decides to have taxidermy as a hobby, Anita helps him to complete the collection.

The last episode of the First Season is a masterpiece of black humor. Mary Lambert of "Pet Sematary" makes a comic episode with great performances of M. Emmet Walsh and Audra Lindley and a predictable, but hilarious end. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
